There is no debating the fact that the Steam library on PC is full of options for gamers to take; some good, some bad, some indifferent. But occasionally a game rocks up onto PC to provide a glorious experience and so when that same game makes the move to console and Xbox One specifically, we just have to sit up and take notice. That game is Tracks – The Train Set Game, and after racking up hugely positive reviews in the land of PC, it’s now time for Xbox One owners to be witness to the stunningly deep experience.
Available to purchase and download on Xbox One, after first arriving on PC back in 2017, Tracks looks set to entertain the console crowd like it has done for those preferring the other side of the gaming coin.
With 478 reviews on Steam Early Access, and 450 of those coming across as ‘positive’, it’s hugely exciting to see the same game roll onto Xbox One, providing a unique sandbox train simulating experience like no other. And what’s more, today’s launch also signals the end of the Steam Early Access period, with the publishing team at Excalibur Games throwing out full release. Our full review of Tracks – The Train Set Game on Xbox One agrees with those positive remarks too.
After being pushed back a couple of months from the original release date, Tracks on Xbox One is here and it promises to let would-be train fanatics, or those who loved messing around with wooden train tracks as a kid, live out their dreams and fantasies. Providing access to huge open sandbox arenas, what you get up to in Tracks is only limited by your imagination. Creating a track and joining it up is one thing, but then decorating the surrounding areas to suit takes a whole new skill. But with Tracks on Xbox One, all that is doable with a huge array of options ready and willing to let you experiment.
Further to that though, if you’re looking to check out your creations for real then dropping into first person and taking charge of your little wooden train brings a whole new world to life, with additional mission structures in place to keep you going back for more.
Tracks – The Train Set Game on Xbox One looks to be an utter delight – particularly after we went hands-on with it back at EGX 2019 – but our full review will be able to shed plenty of light on the outcome. Give it a read and then spend time moseying on over to the Xbox Store and grabbing a digital download of Tracks on Xbox One should be the way to go.
